Comment Post #277057 Sorry for not picking up this request earlier. I've opened https://github.com/codidact/qpixel/issues/812 to get this request assessed and potentially implemented. In the meantime, I'll tag this post as status-deferred. This is probably a nitpick that would be nice for us to fix, but ultimately is ...

Question Please build inline editing functionality
Right now, if a user tries to click the "edit" button on a post, they get taken to a separate page where they can make changes to it. After the changes are made, the user is redirected back to the original post. I understand that at the "Somewhere Else" so many of our users are familiar with, ther...

Answer A: Remove separate search page and put a search textbox directly in the top bar
Thanks for reporting this, and sorry for the long time you waited to have us update this post. We fixed this well back in December 2020 (according to the Recent feature changes post: https://meta.codidact.com/posts/39539). As you can tell from the hash at the bottom of the site, we have definitely...

Article Building Codidact: Inside our Atlassian stack
A while ago, we mentioned that Codidact has been improving its own infrastructure. However, the post only mentioned infrastructure in very broad terms and did not really go into details about planned tool improvements. In the interests of community transparency, we are now sharing some more informati...

Edit Post #286374 Initial revision 3 months ago
Question Deficiencies in the Terms of Service
I took a look at our Terms of Service, and it seems like we are missing a provision on modifying them, a severability clause and a clause incorporating the Privacy Policy into the Terms. This can potentially be serious, as it may not be legally justifiable or may be too risky to not explicitly sta...

Comment Post #286332 Point 1: You don't "own" your account per se, you are using an external service, so you are granted a license to use that service. We are not as legally wordy as most services are, but most larger sites only grant you a revocable license to use their site. If the site revokes your license to use it, ...

Answer A: "You need to select a reaction type." But I see no reaction?
Thanks for reporting the issue and sorry we kept you waiting! We haven't quite mastered how to update on-site topics related to a GitHub issue yet, so it took us a while to route back and update this. We deployed a fix via commit e95bebb, which was released to production within the last month (of ...

Question What should we do to facilitate sharing/recognition of Codidact content?
For context, 'sharing' means sharing to an external website, such as Reddit/Twitter/other sites relevant to a community (e.g. for a writing site, a site frequented by writers). Right now, sharing content from Codidact means copying a URL from a site, switching to the relevant external website and ...

Comment Post #284726 We don’t have any intentions of using Facebook or Reddit for product support - things become complicated (e.g. how do we verify who a user is etc.) and we just can’t justify doing so at this size and scope.

Question Allow use of slugs in category and tag routes
Currently, we pass an ID in urls for the category and tag routes. For instance, the Q&A category on this meta site has an ID of 3. In the long term, this makes it harder for people to access content. For instance, a user can't navigate to (Codidact meta)/categories/3/tags/status-completed to see p...

Answer A: Meaningful hovertext for voting area
The tooltip value is what appears to be the post's score (see here for the relevant code), which in the case you are showing appears to be 0.5 internally. If you have any feature requests, they can be passed onto the developers via GitHub, where these issues are typically tracked.
